Short update - a *good* dairy-free queso & great vegan blog!

I really need to write a full post, but when I do, it's going to be long - I've been baking away in the kitchen, making turkey-shaped sugar cookies for Thanksgiving, gingerbread people and a marble cake for Ainsley's sixth birthday, lemon bars (yes - I found a great egg-free recipe!), and (next week) sugar-cookie snowmen for Ainsley's winter party. But right now I wanted to let you know about two things my very knowledgeable vegan co-worker Annette told me about today - (1) a vegan queso (aka nacho cheese sauce) that actually tastes *good* and (2) a great blog with some to-die-for dessert recipes on it. The queso is called "Nacho Mom's" and the website is here. It has gotten great reviews, including on Amazon, where I bought two jars. I was excited to see that it will be stocked in DFW-area Whole Foods markets beginning in January.

The vegan blog is called Chef Chloe and is here. She won Cupcake Wars on Food Network with a vegan Raspberry Tiramisu cupcake. A lot of her desserts look pretty simple to make and include things like vegan whipped cream, which I have always wondered how to make.

Thanks for the tips, Annette! I cannot wait to get the vegan queso in the mail!

Thanks for sharing the link. I'll have see what they suggest for vegan whipped cream, so nothing I have tried works or taste good.
